Pruning Orange Honeysuckle - Knowledgebase Question

I bought 3 honeysuckle vines last year and they grew up my trellis but didn't bloom. Do I cut them clear back before they start growing this year or do I just leave them alone?

Wait to see if they bloom this summer, and when they're through flowering, prune back the vine tips to encourage branching. Don't be afraid to cut branches back if they start to get out of hand, because they can take it!
